Parachute - Preventing Injuries. Saving Lives.


The TD Think First For Kids Program aims to foster safety conscious habit formation and behavioural change in students, in order to promote life-long injury prevention awareness. The  materials introduce students to key biology concepts, such as brain and spinal cord anatomy.  This is used as foundation for activities and lessons on injury topics like sport and recreational safety. The program will encourage creative problem solving in discussions of these important topics.  (Live Safe video linked on site)

Parachute - Preventing Injuries. Saving Lives.







Did you know that in 2011, there were 226 railway grade crossing and trespassing incidents that resulted in 42 serious injuries and 70 fatalities in Canada? The majority of these could have been prevented. You can help reduce the risk of injury by providing consistent safety messages to the children you work with. The Safe Crossing Program is a comprehensive, easy to use, national rail safety education program. Developed with key partners, the suggested activities connect rail safety to language, science, social sciences, health and physical education for children ages five to 12.
